Do you all make Christmas lists? I never used to make Christmas lists or any kind of presents list. In fact, I did not grow up with a lot of presents; it was never a focal point of holidays or celebrations. But, after I started dating my boyfriend, his family is all about lists and Christmas lists are no exception. At first, it was very awkward, but i quickly realized that there is a good reason for this. Friends and family want to get you a gift - but they want to ensure that you like it. So, if they can't get something already on your list, they have some sort of idea of what you want, what you're hoping to get, and what you're interested in. It's not about getting what's on your list - but it's really, honestly, making it easier for people who want to give you things to make sure that you love what you get. What are your thoughts on present wishlists?
